GREENSBORO, N.C. – The day after Newt Gingrich was bit by a penguin at a zoo, he acknowledged he is “the underdog” and said his campaign began renting their donor list because they needed money.

---

“Compared to Barack Obama, Romney’s a conservative,” he said. “Let’s be clear: There are no liberals in the Republican party.”

Newt too?

Yes.. But I think there's a county commissioner in Utah that's running a conservative third party presidential bid we can all support. (We're still checking to see if he has any Mormons in his background..)

If he means everyone who says they are Republicans, also are not liberal, he is wrong. McCain’s plumpy bubble-headed spawn for example.

If he means because they are liberal he does not consider them to be Republicans, then that may be a better answer.

Yes, they can bite. They also leave terrible bruises when they do bite a human.

Hello old FRiend!

I’m thinking that at least Rick Santorum didn’t endorse Romney!

Maybe Newt’s endorsement was up for rent like his donor list was.

Gotta love that headline...

Newt didn’t endorse Romney. Santorum already did in 2008. And, yeah, the mainstream media will always try desperately in their Alinsky-ite fashion to ridicule real conservatives like Newt Gingrich, who, as card-carrying liberals, they hate. Why you “love” that is another question entirely.

There may not be any liberals in the Republican party (compared to Reid, Pelosi, 0bama, Durbin, Franks, etc.) but the RINOS did not prevent the Demonrats from destroying the country.

Perhaps “incrementalism” can undo much of the damage. I can only hope that Mitt becomes a Conservative Incrementalist.

Giuliani is in a separate class than Romney. Romney is evil.

I might be able to hold my nose and vote for Giuliani to rid this nation of Obama. I won't vote for Romney for any reason.

“Penguins don’t bite, they have no teeth. They are birds after all.”

Birds have no teeth, but they have beaks and sure as heck can bite. My wife had a goose fasten on to her leg and it would not let go until she hoisted him off the ground by his neck. The bite left a good bruise.

Here’s a good research project for you: stick your finger in a parrot’s cage.

Excellent, furthermore government wasn’t ever supposed to be so big that you’d ever think of trusting it.

My favorite bumper sticker -

“Sure you can trust government, ask any Indian.”

It was being driven by an old granny!
